Two Wolfe School Girls Banned From Wearing Confederate Flag

The Confederate battle flag was barred from one eastern Kentucky graduation.

Two girls graduating from Wolfe County Middle School weren't allowed to wear their caps decorated with the Confederate flag. Students were told they could decorate their caps, but the principal says the flag is too offensive.

14-year-old Desarae Adkins says she's heartbroken she couldn't wear her cap, and that she just likes the flag and doesn't want to offend anyone.
